Red face See? This is why my girl is separated from the Top Players.

She just lacks consistancy. Look at Kim and Lindsay, they seldom lost, and they rarely lost at some early rounds. If they meet some tough players, they still manage to pass through. Elena, on the other hand, can not control her form and play when she meets someone like Hantuchova, Schiavone, or Peschke.

She has been very consistent this year. She has quite a good spring season and then a horrible Clay/Grass/US Summer, then suddenly, she has some big wins from USO onwards, defeating Davenport, Clijsters and have some wins in Fed Cup final.

Finally, I hope Elena will just learn something from this, and play better from now!

I think she would be sooo soo much better if she can improve her server; im not implying that she hasnt already tried it.

100% agree. she needs a coach...she is so supremely talented, not anyone wins a 6-2 set off of clijsters or a 6-1 on davenport or a 6-0 on capriati...

she is a headcase though. she doesn't go crazy but you can see she doubts herself. also, her game is so high risk that when she's off, she loses. she needs to develop her finesse game more...her dropshots are pretty bad sometimes. maybe a slice backhand too? and the serve? who knows. she needs a coach....i could see her winning AO, FO, and USO with a coach..

She's not consistent. That's why she made 2 slam finals in a year, but only won 1 tournament that whole year, and only 4 total.
Very talented athlete, but every match is an adventure.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Lena D. is just a cruel, sadistic monster who loves to torture her fans.

It's almost become a test of wills: Lena D. trying to crush us all and us refusing to go away.

But hey. I'm a Cubs fan. I understand futility.

Elena, you can never defeat me. I will be loyal forever.

Thatís exactly my argument about her, starting from the early days of her career to this day. Once Elena manages to keep her game in a consistent level continuously, she will get much better results than ever.
Iím very much disappointed with her loss today, but hopefully she will come back stronger next time. Just focus more, Elena!!!

dementieva-krajicek need to be unseperable in terms of serve coaching

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic
